2005 neon.sxt. 2.0L magnum...

2005 neon.sxt. 2.0L magnum. started engine,let run a minute,put in gear then stalled. cranked 4 or5 time would not run.no dash lights (warning) engine finally started but radio stations were cleared, which leads me to believe,there was a power interruption some place but not to the start circuit. Check engine light is not on, but it does work....Comes on when key is turned on and goes out when engine starts. car has 130k miles

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

I'll check, be right back

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Magnum?

Stays on solid then goes out after starting...it's a 2005

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Magnum yourself? What have you tried so far?

I was going to try fixing it myself, but I don't know how to get any stored codes, if there are any. It's starting and running now

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Had to change the cam sensor about 3 years ago

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Check/replace the battery cables. I have seen issues with those cables causing this exact problem. It will be either the cables or the connection at the under hood fuse box. I am pretty sure this is the problem.

Hi Chris, just installed new $90 battery cable assy. (from my dodge dealer). Installed new battery also since old one was 6 years old. Cable crimps at battery terminal connectors were green colored but no corrosion at terminal inside fuse box. Removed and wire brushed ground straps at inner fenders and radiator header panel then sprayed all grounds and battery terminals with red battery terminal spray. Hope this does the trick. THANK YOU for the quick reply.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
